Lady Debra D. Martin was born in Madison, Mississippi and relocated to Flint, Michigan (after graduation from high school).

She accepted Christ at the age of 11, but rededicated herself during her college years. She is the proud mother of four children: Tanya, Elijah, Isaiah ,and Crystal. And the grandmother of six; Kendall, Santana, Kyle, Noah, Elisha and Logan.


Attended the The University of Michigan where she received her Bachelor of Business Administration.  It was during this time where she met her husband to be – Pastor Gary Martin.

Lady Debra is currently the Facilitator of the Women’s Ministry where she oversees the planning of our Women’s Retreat and Fifth Sunday speakers. She also coordinates our weekly prayer call. Her desire is to see that all women not just have a personal relationship with Christ, but to be completely free in HIM. She dislikes seeing women in bondage to anything that is not like Christ.


In the secular world, she has basically dedicated her life to working for non-profit agencies where she has facilitated and overseen youth programs that teach healthy relationship skills and life style to middle and high school students, conducted family programming, overseen and written grants and been an administrative assistant.


Independent Consultant for Arbonne International (A Health & Wellness Company). Debra teaches people how to take regular expenses and turn them into an income by doing something they are already doing. She loves to educate individuals on the benefits of living healthy on the outside as well as the inside by using pure, safe and beneficial skincare, cosmetics and nutrition products.  She believes that God has a plan and a purpose for each of us and that He wants all of us to be healthy as we fulfill that destiny.


Old Testament: The entire Psalm 139 chapter, especially vs. 13-14  “For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. (NKJV)

New Testament: Ephesians 3:19-20 Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us, 21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (AMP version)

First Lady, Debra Martin
